    It's a poster child for why adaptations turn out bad. Well made movie with a good cast and obviously great source material, but... the characters' inner states and emotions make up a large part of the book, because there's limited action and the world is a freezing ash desert. None of the internal stuff is in the movie because it can't be shown. It's just a straightforward film about the events described in the book. It could be a good movie in every way, and still not be a successful adaptation because of this. As currently constructed, it has virtues but it's kind of flat. Jericho is way better.

            If you want to see a really bad case, look at Lilyhammer. First season was pure kino and rivals Breaking Bad in terms of writing. Second season turned it into a sitcom and the third season they just gave up and made Bruce Springsteen kill everyone (literally). I'm guessing it will be the same with Squid Games.

    IMO the fun thing about post-apo is how people try to rebuild their world, the kind of new stuff that can arise. Even if it's not realistic it's a fun backdrop

    The last of us is basically just a terrible imitation of this movie/novel. God I hate that game.

        During an apocalyptic scenario, the roads will actually stay decent as there are very little cars/trucks using them. Just look at the average driveway vs the average road. A driveway will easily last for 20+ years, even with daily use and winter weather.

        The worst thing for a road is snowplows. Any crack forms from ice, and they catch and rip it up.

    Honestly, no.
    There are simply too many elements that give the film the wrong 'feel' and it ends up being meh. You'd think after seeing how well the Coens adapted No Country the filmmakers would follow their lead but instead of having static shots and no music to create the feeling of an inhospitable empty world they have handheld shots and shitty sad carbon copy piano music. If you watch Casey Affleck's Light of My Life which is essentially The Road, you'll see how they should have made it.
    Also pulling you out of the ending by making you think 'Hey that's Guy Pearce!' wtf were they thinking?

    There is a spiritual element in the book that is kinda lost in the movie. The man sees in the boy some kind of transcendent, pure force that makes him ponder about the value of life and existence and it keeps alive the flame, the will to keep going despite all the suffering. It's not a ''misery porn'' story at all.
